REVIEW: The Broken One By Ruth Cardello

REVIEW: The Broken One By Ruth Cardello

SYNOPSIS

In New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy and emotional romance, a billionaire dares to invest in the riskiest proposition of his life: a second chance at love.

Single mom Heather Ellis would do anything for her adopted daughter, Ava. Even post an online reward for anyone who found the girl’s lost stuffed animal. Who’d have guessed it’d be returned by a drop-dead-sexy man with such sadness in his eyes that she had to reach out to him? To Ava, he’s a hero. To Heather, he’s a fantasy that puts at risk the happy life she’s made for herself.

It’s been five years since billionaire developer Sebastian Romano lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. Now he’s all business. No room for emotion. Until he stumbles across that damn stuffed wolf and the beautiful single mother looking for it. Is he ready to give love a second chance?

But there’s more to Sebastian, his family, and his past than Heather knows. More than even Sebastian knows. Will the life they’re building together be challenged when the truth is finally revealed?

MY REVIEW

** I was given the ARC in exchange for my Honest Review **

This one was a bit confusing to start with, there was a lot going on that awas kind of jumbled, to me personally, but once I really started reading it I fell in love with the torture that Sebastian was putting himself through, over something that he had no control over. I could see the pressures that Heather was putting herself through to be the best mommy she could be to Ava.

As a working mom I can feel for Heather so much on the parent level and how defensive you get over your children, and what goes through your mind when someone questions your parenting style. We as parents question that so much already about ourselves.

I do like the dynamic between Heather and Sebastian, she is the grounding force that he has needed since the incident, she will help but will no enable him and that is what he has been missing. As his family was enabling him in a way because they were unsure how to handle what he was feeling.

I do not like the rushes aspects of their relationship, that bothered me a bit, especially with the way he was hot and cold with her in the beginning, but then again who are we to judge how fast people fall in real life or not. My parents were engaged 3 weeks after meeting and married a year later.

If you like sweet romances, quirky kids, and brooding alpha males I recommend this book, it wasn’t really for me, But I will give book #2 a chance when it comes out.

REVIEW: Love Me Tomorrow By Maria Luis

REVIEW: Love Me Tomorrow By Maria Luis

SYNOPSIS

They call her America’s Sweetheart.
And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV.

I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.

Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor.

If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.
If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be… but I’m not.

Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.

All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”

I’m no gentleman.
But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.

Love Me Tomorrow is the third book in the highly anticipated series, Put A Ring On It, and can be read as a complete standalone.

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *

I can’t even!! The sweet twists the subtle turns and all the sweet swoon worthy things that don’t come out of Owens mouth makes me want to trade in my sweet straight laced nerdy hubby. And I would then get the dark brooding hard to sometimes read tattoo artist..

(Oh wait I have one of those in the female form of my bestest friend! )She is a tattoo artist and has been for just over 20 year… Talking to her about tattooing and the closeness you feel to those you care about when they want to wear your art on their body.

That scene made the book for me. Its so sweet and sassy, and funny with the antichrist who has a change of heart later on. A Rom com book i could read again and again.

Please check it out!

REVIEW: Cocky Player By Stacey Lynn

REVIEW: Cocky Player By Stacey Lynn

SYNOPSIS

Like most guys I have a type— she wasn’t mine.

Not at all.

The angelic beauty on the dance floor has innocence written all over her. But I can’t stay away. And when she runs from me, leaving me wanting more, I can’t get her out of my head.

Turns out finding her won’t be too hard. My mystery virgin is the new marketing assistant for the Rough Riders Football team. And the owner’s daughter.

She wants to lose her virginity and she’s come to me for one thing, and one thing only. I’ll gladly help her out, but we have to be careful no one discovers us.

The last thing I need is for my boss to find out I’ve been teaching his baby girl all my dirtiest plays.

But I didn’t get to be MVP by playing by the rules. 

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *

The Instant Chemistry between Brenna and Connor was there right from the start, but the hot and cold in some parts left me wanting. She was a sheltered girl trying to overcome trauma, he was a boy who had worked so hard to get what he wanted that he never took it for granted. But that doesn’t mean he did seek out any perks of the day.

I Did like the book and how the premise came to be, But I never really understood fully why Brenna went around it the way she did. And The fact that Connor was not as upset as Imagined, because he may have seemed like a player and a ladies man. He did have respect for the women and they knew the score before they started.

I have not read a book by Stacey and this was the first and really did like it that I am looking into the first 3 books of this Rough Riders series. I am big on the sport novels and that is why I think I may be a bit biased on this, but I am also very picky on what ones I read. This is one that I would re read again and again.

Thank you

BOOKS I HAVE READ THIS MONTH! September 2019

BOOKS I HAVE READ THIS MONTH! September 2019

NOW, it is only September 24th, and I have read 21 books!! SO, instead of Listing them all…. I am going to share the Top 5 books…. But there is already a Cheat… One “Book” in this will be a trilogy and YOU will READ it and YOU will LIKE it!!

Here is my Beautiful List!

ONE: All The Forbidden Things By Lesley Jones

When all that you want, is all that’s forbidden…

I’ve known him my entire life.
Before marriage.
Before fatherhood.
Before betrayal.
Now, he’s one of rock’s bad-boys trying to be good.
Trying to be the best father he can for his daughter.
He’s my brother’s best friend.
He’s my boss.
He has a wife.
Max isn’t mine to have, but I want him all the same.
And I haven’t survived all that I have to not go after what I want.

Her story is a tragedy, mine’s a publicity disaster.

Just when I needed her most, she walked back into my life, and the timing couldn’t be worse.
With a newborn baby, a divorce, an album to record, and a world tour to plan, I don’t need the distraction.
She’s off limits.
She’s my best friend’s little sister.
She’s my nanny.
Billie’s a golden drop of sexy sun on a grey autumn day, tempting me into the light and a life full of possibilities.
A life not meant for us.

TWO: Tales Of Olympus Trilogy By: Lee Savino and Stasia Black

INNOCENCE:
I’m king of the criminal underworld.
I always get what I want.
And she’s my obsession.
Cora is new to the city of sin.
Her innocent blue eyes beg for me to claim her.
But I’m not the billionaire she thinks I am.
There’s a darkness within me.
And Cora is a shining light.
She’s beautiful. A virgin.
I’m ruthless. A beast.
She found me for a reason.
She’ll be my queen.
I’ll give her everything that her heart desires.
Except for one thing.
Her freedom.
She’s mine to keep, and I’m never letting her go.

AWAKENING
When a rock god asks Cora to help find his missing fiance, she befriends both a stripper and a hacker genius to help her search the city of Olympus. But will they save the woman in time with the evil of the underworld standing in their way?

QUEEN OF THE UNDERWORLD
The King of the Underworld saved me from the streets,
Treated me like a princess,
And locked me in a tower.
Then he turned into a beast.
There’s a darkness in him.
I’ve seen it face to face.
He says I’m his light.
But if our love is going to last,
I’m going to have to be more than his princess.
I need to become a Queen.

THREE: Neat By Kandi Steiner

My life is over.

I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studio I’d always dreamed of.

It can’t be that bad, I thought.

Until I realized my new boss was Logan Becker.

The Becker brothers have a reputation for being trouble, and since I love trouble, it’s no surprise to me that I’m infatuated by that forbidden fruit the first day I walk into the distillery. That lean, whiskey-eyed, too-hot-for-his-own-good man hates me — and I can’t blame him. His family has been at war with mine for decades, and for good reason.

The Beckers and the Scooters are the Montagues and Capulets of Stratford, Tennessee.

But if he’s Romeo, and I’m Juliet? Well… we all know how that story ends — and for that reason, I tell myself to steer clear.

Because if my father finds out I’m falling for Logan Becker, my life actually will be over.

And Logan’s will be, too.

FOUR: Hated You Then By M. Robinson

From Wall Street Journal & USA Bestselling Author M. Robinson. A coming of age, enemies to lovers, contemporary romance filled with angst and all the feels.

I couldn’t remember a time before her… Harley Jameson.

Before she owned me.
Hated Me.
Needed me.

Before I hated her…

Things were simple.
We had an understanding.

Bully. Fight. Hate. It’s what we did.

Mind. Body. Soul. It’s how we loved.

I thought nothing would ever change that, until everything did.

She was mine.
Always had been.
Always would be.
Nothing altered that.

Not how much I hated her.
Not how much she hated me.

Especially, not how much I hated…

That I LOVED her. 

FIVE: Love Me Tomorrow By Maria Luis

They call her America’s Sweetheart.
And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV.

I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.

Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor.

If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.
If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be… but I’m not.

Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.

All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”

I’m no gentleman.
But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.

Love Me Tomorrow is the third book in the highly anticipated series, Put A Ring On It, and can be read as a complete standalone.

Their clout on the ice is questionable.

Their competition cutthroat.

Their beds…

Well, there will always be puck bunnies ready to keep them warm. After all, no matter how well they do or don’t do, they are the university’s most important athletes.

However, when Remington Ronald Rutledge the 3rd, lands himself on the new head coach’s bad side, which threatens his chances of playing for the season, he finds himself striking an unusual deal with a blast from his past he can barely remember.

Did she always wear these glasses?

Was her hair always this curly?

Has she always had a smile that makes him wanna smile?

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *

Logan and Mallory to me are goals! They are on opposite sides in so many different ways, but that is what makes them work so well. The Chemistry bounces off the page, makes you really bleed for both of them in all the trials and tribulations that they are put through.

The Beckers boys were raised right in so many ways! Their parents are one of a kind and even with their father no longer with them, he is still felt and cherished by each member of the Becker Brood.

The Scooters values and how they were brought up were the polar opposite of the Beckers. Their parents did not have the same once in a lifetime love, the two Scooter siblings did not get along or keep in touch at all.

Logan is a type A personality, everything has a place, and every place has a thing, everything is neat and tidy, routine is created and rules are followed. Mallory is an artists! She thrives in chaos and seems to bring chaos with her wherever she goes, rules are meant to be broken in her world. Their families are in a silent war and the whole town knows about it. But the draw and the chemistry is there and makes you want to know more.

Also seeing how close they are to finding out about the Becker father and what happened to him in that distillery fire. Makes me want to see more.

I recommend this book!

REVIEW: Make Me Fall By Ember Leigh

REVIEW: Make Me Fall By Ember Leigh

SYNOPSIS

There’s one rule in my family.

Stay away from the Daly brothers.

We were raised to know them as users. Manipulators. But I only ever saw Connor as the enigmatic senior hottie who dropped into fifth period to teach us about the perils of drunk driving.

When my first big girl job out of college ends up with us working at the same company, it’s heart throb city all over again. Except he’s way ahead of the game. Successful, talented, put together. I’m just a frumpy twenty-something in a quarter life crisis who doesn’t know a glue stick from a makeup highlighter.

He would never want me, even though he’s all I ever wanted in secret. So when we cross paths one night at the bar and one drink leads to another, he slaps me with an offer I can’t refuse.

Accompany him back to Bayshore, flight included.

Only stipulation? Pose as his girlfriend.

Our families will flip, but I’m not strong enough to say no to those baby blues, especially if it means I’ll have a chance to go on vacation with my adolescent heart throb.

We’ve got two weeks to prove we’re head over heels for each other.

Which is just enough time to make me fall.

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *

The Humor in this book gets me, and Kinsley and her unrequited crush just does my heart in. Conner is a guy who needed a reality check and got one.

How Kinsley talks herself into still believing this is all but a ruse to get under his families skin, and how she carries herself in the face of their frosty reception of her shows how amazing she is as a person.

Connor his character bothered me, in many ways. Mainly because I grew up in a small town where everyone knew everyone’s business, who you dates, who slept with who and who was on what drugs…. AHH Small Town living, such a great time.

In some ways it was like Connor never really left high school, where as Kinsley’s issues were fresh and more raw, Connor needed someone to take him out of that popular kid, high school mentality and Kins seemed to be that person. Whether she knows it or not, that is a completely different story.

This is my very first Ember Leigh book and I fell that I will be coming back for more.
